Dr. Who Spin-off!

Did anyone see the most recent incarnation of Dr. Who, which I understand appeared on the BBC earlier this year? I saw some minor buzz about it from British fen, but I don't believe it's aired in the US.

Well, apparently the Doctor's new companion, one Jack Harkness, was popular enough that he's going to warrant his own spin-off called Torchwood. And, get this, he's openly bisexual! Yay! You just don't see that on US TV. You do see gay characters from time to time, but they're rarely very central (Willow being an exception) and they're pretty much never bisexual. I just loved Dr. Who when I was a kid. It's such a great old genre show, and I'm thrilled to hear that it's getting a new, edgy, queer-friendly image. I just hope we'll get to see it on this side of the pond eventually.
